Meet three-year-0ld Zakariyah. As a result of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that he endured as a baby, Zakariyah has been diagnosed with seizure disorder, vision impairment, and spastic quadraparesis. Because of his diagnosis he experiences decreased strength, decreased range of motion, and decreased functional mobility. Although faced with these difficult challenges, Zakariyah finds joy in his life every day.
Zakariyah is described by his mother as a happy child that is full of love. He enjoys going to the park on sunny days, and his favorite part is to get pushed on the swings. When it is time to relax, he prefers to watch the lovable Notekins, a troupe of musical notes discovering the wonderful world of music and sounds! Zakariyah also loves his mom’s cooking – especially her mashed potatoes!
Zakariyah is in need of a therapeutic mobility device, specifically an adaptive tricycle. The trike will provide prevention of contracted muscles and orthopedic abnormalities. This device will promote upright posture, bone growth, strengthening of muscles, and better hand-eye coordination. Please help provide Zakariyah the benefits he will gain by receiving this therapeutic device.
